Composite Piezoelectric Material for Biomedical Micro Hydraulic System
‘Lab-on-a-chip’ is integrated micro-analytical system, which could perform sample pre-treatment, chemical reactions, analytical separation, detection and data handling. These platforms are able to convert biological, chemical or mechanical responses into electrical signals using the piezoelectric or piezoresistive materials. This paper discusses a piezoelectric composite material displaying its mechanical properties such as resonant frequencies, Young’s modulus and density. Nano composite polymer highlights the property of piezo effect and is suitable for formation of periodic micro scale patterns on it. These micro patterns are intended to be used as innovative functional elements in biomedical micro hydro mechanical systems such as micro channels. Thus by controlling surface configuration and the shape of active deformable polymer, pressure in microfluidic vessels can be changed and mobility of the transported bioparticles can be ensured.
